[image]Eruption of Mt. Etna in Sicily - Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Sicily's Mt.Etna is erupting for the fourth straight day, and small earthquakes continue to rumble in the region, causing the evacuation of at least 1,000 people according to news reports. Reports indicate that lava flows are slowing, and no communities appear to be in danger, although tourist facilities farther up the mountain experienced some losses. This true-color image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite shows the brown plume wafting from the...

[image]Eruption of Mt. Etna in Sicily - Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
The thick plume of volcanic ash and smoke coming from Mt. Etna has tapered to a thin line over the course of the past four weeks, but a thermal signature was still being detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite on November 23, 2002. The plume is streaming east over the Mediterranean Sea, and is casting a dark shadow to its north. Mt. Etna began erupting on October 27, 2002...

The patterns visible to the south of the Greek islands in this SeaWiFS image are possible caused by variations in the specular reflection of sunlight from the water's surface. Land masses perturb the wind field which in turn results in bands of differing roughness and wave orientation at the sea surface which in turn affects how much sun glint the sensor sees.

The Ebro River Delta, located along the eastern coast of Spain, is one of the largest wetland areas (320 km2) in the western Mediterranean region. The Ebro delta has grown rapidly—the historical rate of growth of the delta is demonstrated by the city of Amposta. This city was a seaport in the 4th Century, and is now located well inland from the current Ebro river mouth. The rounded form of the delta attests to the balance between sediment deposition by the Ebro River and removal of this materi...
